Insights from JEC EU: Concordia Unveils CF- & Thermoplastic Fiber-based Commingled Yarns

Published on 2015-02-19. Author : SpecialChem

JEC Europe 2015 - Commingling is a process for producing highly flexible thermoplastic prepregs. Concordia intimately blends unsized continuous-filament carbon fiber with unsized continuous-filament thermoplastic fibers to produce a yarn that can be woven or braided into fabrics.

These fabrics are then molded into complex shapes with the addition of heat and pressure. Other matrix polymers offered by the company include PEEK, PPS, PA6, PA12, polyester, and polypropylene. All of these thermoplastics can be commingled with a broad range of carbon and glass fibers.
